Bovist, designed by Hella Jongerius, is a decorative floor pillow, stool and ottoman all in one. Fanciful embroidered motifs lend a special flair to the cover, which is sewn together out of contrasting fabrics. Tapered radial seams around the sides and a compact filling of small synthetic beads provide a comfortable seat, while a handle made of knitted yarn makes it easy to move Bovist from one place to another.
The Dutch designer Hella Jongerius lives and works in Berlin. She founded the Jongeriuslab studio in 1993 and began collaborating with Vitra in 2004. Since then, she has not only contributed a substantial number of designs to the continually expanding Vitra Home Collection, but has also applied her expertise in the realm of colours and materials to the Vitra Colour & Material Library.
